Transcript for The Bates Family on Raising 19 Kids, New Reality Show
family, 21 all together. 19 kids. And they're starring in a new show on tlc. "The united bates of america." It's very clever. Everybody, please welcome the entire familiar limit. Real quick. I'm going to do the near impossible. I'm going to name all of you, five kids are not with us today and we thank you for that. Mom and dad, kelly jo and gil. And here we go. Michaela, katie, grace. Zach, , ally, carlin. Justin. And little guy jeb. Hi, jeb. Unfortunately that's all of the time we have. I want to ask a question to mom. I was reading some stats. 7 loads of laundry, 7 gallons of milk. 9 loads of laundry. How do you do it? They help a lot. We say the biggest thing that makes our family work is our faith in the lord. We have mess-ups just like any family. We are a normal family. We just lean on the lord. Do you ever look at a kid, and the name just escapes you? Yeah, I call out about four names before I get it right. Just go down the list. Just a typical day, because i know they're home schooled. What's a typical day like? We get you up, try to have quiet time. Read our bible, and get yourself and your partner ready. Fix breakfast for yourself. It's self-serve, for breakfast, cereal, granola bar, something fast so we can get started. They have a chore assignment that we rotate. And a short little character lesson then it's time for lunch, then we start our school work for the day. How exhausting. You are super mom.
